Pre-season will start for all Senior players on Tuesday, July 4th. It will then continue every Tuesday and Thursday night. Players of all abilities are welcome as the club will be running 3 Senior sides in the leagues this year and so there will be ‘Rugby for All’ at the club this season.

Pre-season friendlies have been arranged throughout August and there will be plenty of opportunity to see the teams in action with home games throughout:
